Is Brock Lesnar working Sunday?

March 31, 2012

Dave Metzler is reporting that Brock Lesnar has signed a one year deal with the WWE.  The deal comes the night before Wrestlemania fueling speculation that the former UFC Heavyweight Champ may make an appearance in the WWE for Wrestlemania or the day after.

Previously, it was reported that since Lesnar announced his retirement with the UFC that he was free from any contractual obligation with the company.  Lesnar’s return to the WWE can only help the company that’s looking to make a big splash with its biggest event of the year.  Lesnar is in Miami, the site of Wrestlemania, and the rumors are flying about when/if Lesnar will make an appearance.

Payout Perspective:

Lesnar’s return to pro wrestling has been rumored since his run in with the Undertaker after losing his title to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121.  For the WWE, it’s a risk considering Lesnar’s health.  Even though the WWE is scripted, Lesnar still has to physically perform in the ring. But, Lesnar can be a big draw considering name recognition and his history of being a PPV draw.  This should appeal to the WWE as it can only help its PPV buys as well as provide some buzz for building its network.
